Five Rajasthan cities get poor score in Ease of Living Index 18.8.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
The low scores in the education, health and housing categories can be attributed to poor performance of the state cities in Ease of Living Index. Among the 111 cities ranked in the index, five are from Rajasthan. However, none of them appeared among the top 30 in education or health parameters. Jaipur leads the state at 49 rank across country.  Governance apparently didn’t make living any better and Jodhpur at national rank of 38 scored best in the state followed by Jaipur at 64 position. The other cities fell way behind and Ajmer was at 94 position in the category.  Released a week ago, the report has left authorities at Rajasthan puzzled as it raises questions on the administration’s claim of achievement and reforms in the above-mentioned sectors.

Non-chlorinated water supply irks residents 5.7.2018 The Tribune
Kuldip Bhatia Ludhiana, July 4 There seems to be no end to the woes of residents in Shaheed Bhagat Singh Nagar, a 475 acre colony developed by the Ludhiana Improvement Trust (LIT) on Pakhowal Road here.
